With a new Cap now established, things go from bad to worse as the Red Skull makes an unexpected move for the very soul of America! And what was it that Sharon Carter saw at the end of the last issue?

    After all that praise, I do have one nitpick about the issue. Bucky has a weird flashback/modern dream sequence that really felt out of place. I understand what Brubaker was going for, but it feels like it could have been handled a little more smoothly. Really though, four paragraphs of praise compared to three sentences of criticism is quite the lofty ratio. Read Full Review

    Lastly, Steve Epting returns to art duties this issue. To be honest, I can't say that I missed him. If that isn't saying something about Butch Guice's fill-in work, I don't know what is. Either way, it's great to have Epting back where he belongs. His art, as always, flows in harmony with Brubaker's script. Though I have to say I miss some of the day lit outdoor scenes of the last couple of issues. It was nice seeing some bright colors in this book. Now we're back to the moody and muted earth tones again. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Apr 15, 2008

    Brubaker delivers yet another solid issue of this series. While I'm a bit wary that some newer Captain America fans will feel alienated if my theory proves true, I for one absolutely love the idea of tapping into some classic Captain America stories and retro-fitting them for Bucky. While I love Steve Rogers, I also love this series and can hold off on his eventual return a bit longer. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Apr 18, 2008

    Captain America #37 was another strong read. Brubaker continues to make this title an absolute gem and certainly one of the best reads on the market from either Marvel or DC. I don't know what else I can say to encourage people to give this title a try. You absolutely do not have to be a Captain America fan to enjoy this title. I am perfect proof of that. I have never for a moment ever found Captain America to be an interesting character. Then along came Brubaker and now I a rabid Captain America fan. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jun 29, 2008

    Epting works hard at recreating entire sets that look real. For example, the introductory pages in 1945s Paris, is quite vivid and respectful of actual Parisian architecture. When added to his fine depiction of characters, it creates a whole world that is almost like a film. Some of the main characters faces are starting to look the same, but thats a small caveat.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 16, 2008

    Personally, I'm getting a little impatient with this storyline. I understand why it's being done and I know this will read so much better in a trade, but aside from one or two issues, ever since Bucky took over as Cap, it feels like we're watching paint dry. Read Full Review
